Girl With Guitalele

o say I have missed printmaking would be an understatement. All for the analog, all for the hands; the mind following the body rather than the body hosting the mind. I am in the search of the tactile. Something sad happens to us when we become phone tapping zombies, eyes glazing over as our backs…

Is a patron supposed to patronize?

I can’t seem to get my head around this issue. The answer for me is a clear no. Why? You chose to look into the arts/design and offer an assignment or a project or a frog. You are looking for a logo. You are looking for something to come up on that wall over there.…

In defence of the Naïve

Is it enough? Is it good? Is it okay?
